HOW KODA BECAME BRAVE

 
I was such a shy pup
I was such a shy pup

I was very handsome, with one brown eye and one blue eye

But I was shy

Some people don’t like shy puppies

I didn't know how to be a brave dog

I didn't know how to be a brave dog

They want the playful puppies

But one family met me and knew right away I was their puppy

They saw into my heart and liked my shy personality

I went H O M E and became a Goebel

I loved my new name

I loved my new name

They called me many different names but my favorite was Koda!

Then they started calling me Koda Bear!

and I really liked that a lot!

But I was still very shy

I was afraid of everything

I was afraid of everything

I was afraid of lots of things

I was afraid of the

Dishwasher

Chairs

Other dogs

People

Mops

Brooms

Fireworks

And even water

My new family didn’t know how to help me but they spent a lot of time with me

I loved playing with my family

I loved playing with my family

They taught me lots of new things like how to

Come when Called

Rollover

Shake Paws

Sit and Stay

I love working and helping people

I love working and helping people

They taught me to be a Delta Therapy Dog and now I had a real job.

I even worked with others dogs, and that used to make me really scared.

Once I started thinking about how to do these things, guess what?

I wasn’t afraid anymore!

All the fears flew out of my mind because I was thinking about my family and the fun things I had learned to do

I love to jump really high

I love to jump really high

I really love to hike and travel the most. My family always takes me to amazing places like to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and Yosemite

I love to play with my furry friends

I am also very athletic and love to

J U M P

J U M P

 J U M P

That’s what Australian Shepherds are very good at and …

I have the very best life

I have the very best life

When you do something you are good at your fears fly away.

And that’s how the shyest dog became the BRAVEST DOG.
